: meanwhile, on the fox news channel last night, romney reversed course on his remark that 47% of americans don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and that has been demonstrated throughout my life. this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it'll be about helping the 100%. >> brown: still, president obama was having none of it. >> from the day we began this campaign, we've always said that real change takes time. it takes more than one year or one term, or even one president. it takes more than one party. it certainly can't happen if you're willing to write off half the nation before you even take office. >> brown: with the economy dominating the campaign, and with 12 million americans still unemployed, it was clear the punching and counter-punching over jobs will only grow more intense. and there's still one more monthly employment report coming-- on

not reacted to that speech by mitt romney. but last night at a major fund-raiser in los angeles, he was flexing his foreign policy muscles right off the top of his remarks, he was talking about how he ended the war in iraq, how he's winding down the war in afghanistan, how he's gone after terrorists, how he got osama bin laden. those are just some examples, says his campaign, of strong leadership. as president obama honored civil rights icon cesar chavez -- >> the movement he helped to lead was sustained by a generation of organizers who stood up and spoke out and urged others to do the same. >> reporter: his campaign worked to shred gop nominee mitt romney's foreign policy chops, rolling out this hard-hitting web ad reminding voters of what they called stumbles on the world stage. >> governor romney not too long ago said, the russian federation is our number one strategic threat. come on, think. that isn't the case. >> reporter: and this tv ad now running in the important battleground state of virginia. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said ro

. >> bill: yeah. >> so it just shows unless -- for families that have five nannies, they night understand the value of that little tiny break. >> bill: another way of showing how he doesn't relate to average families. did romney get -- what do the polls show? did he get any bounce out of the presidential debate? >> it is looking that way, sure. the first polled a little bit -- the other ones are starting to tickle out, showing a little bit of movement in his way. these are bounces, though which is why they call them bounces. it is already coming back down -- the polls were moving in romney's direction a few days before the debate kind of that natural, kind of movement of polls post convention and this certainly accelerated it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly th

along that governor romney will have a good night. he is prepared more than any candidate in history, and he has shown himself to be a very good debater through the years. >> reporter: further, governor, since you are supporting romney, the candidate, who is running behind, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of three presidential debates. like this. >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because, frankly, the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> reporter: and like this. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely, governor christie, definitely not like this. >> i'll tell you, bob, thursday morning you're going to be skramping your heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner now for the next 33 days. >> reporter: because the thing is when you say that the president's senior advisor says stuff like this. >> they expect to come out of this with the race fundamentally changed. what does
to go to the finish line. momentum off his debate's success, mitt romney kept the heat on the president last night in florida. >> he said, you know, you can't fix washington from the inside. you can only fix it from the outside. we'll give him that chance on november. >> reporter: the romney campaign says it's taken in $12 million in campaign cash. while the obama campaign reported a record monthly haul, $181 million in september, tops for either campaign this year. in his weekly address the president touted another september number, the unexpected drop in the jobless rate. >> friday we learned the unemployment rate is at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the workforce. more americans are getting jobs. >> reporter: and in case you like your politics a bit more tongue-in-cheek -- >> that is how you are preparing, prepping for the rumble with chicken? >> that's right. >> reporter: two tv warriors squared off in their own rhetorical throwdown. john stewart left leading host of "the daily show" and took on bill o'reilly, the conservative host of fox, and what
after night. i can't always say the same. >> meanwhile, the romney campaign is on the offense, taking friday's september jobs report which the white house touts as a triumph and turning that against the president. listen. >> this economy is not doing well and the fact that you have a white house celebrating an unemployment rate of 7.8% with 23 million americans out of work or unemployed or underemployed, tells you a lot about the failure of this administration's policies. >> this, of course, leading up to thursday's first and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. democratic congressman tim ryan joins us this morning from the crucial swing state of ohio where an appeals court decided on friday that early voting will be reinstated for the three days that lead up to election day. nice to see you. thank you for taking with us. >> good to be with you. >> appreciate that. let's talk a gallup poll to start with. you can see in the time since the debate, it looks as if mitt romney has gained points. president obama has lost points. i think you guys have the wrong poll
. >> reporter: 9,000 flag-waving romney supporters jammed the town square, 6,000 last night, all ready to turn the president out of office. >> you all have the chance to hear his answers or his not answers -- nonanswers. now, of course, days later we're hearing his excuses, and next january we'll be watching him leave the white house for the last time. >> reporter: team romney is feeling the momentum from his debate performance, and the obama campaign is admitting even the president realizes he didn't perform at his peak. >> i think you can assume that he's reviewed the tape, and it will inform -- it will inform how he handles these subsequent debates. >> reporter: it wasn't all bad news, the president was buoyed by the drop in the unemployment rate to below 8%, and he broke his own record by raising $181 million in just september, putting him on track to hit a billion dollars, and tonight the president is doing even more fund-raising in los angeles appearing at a small event with bill clinton too, but it's an issue from the debate -- >> governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 t

on the united states. but that night, with the attacks on the u.s. embassy in libya and egypt, mitt romney went on the attack against the president and that backfired. that's why you're going to see a more aggressive mitt romney. he gave a preview on the campaign trail in florida. >> we face a time when there's tumult in the middle east and other parts of the world. and people are asking, where's america? where's american leadership? this is a critical time. if we were to re-elect president obama, i don't think we'd measure up to the test of time. >> reporter: that was from the campaign trail in virginia on friday. remember the last presidential debate is on foreign policy. our most recent poll on foreign policy. the president has a seven-point advantage. we'll see. >> before we get to that foreign policy debate, we have the vice presidential debate coming up thursday night. what are the expectations there's? >> reporter: i think a lot more is on the line. more is on the line for the debate because of the president's lackluster performance. both candidates talking about the big showdown in kent
romney's performance in denver. >> plenty of people pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, he was -- if he was speaking last night. he was lying. stuart: oh, dear. joining the company from florida is republican congressman allen west. congressman you've been the subject of personal attacks. the romney campaign responds to the word liar saying it's sour grapes for the president's debate loss. is that a strong enough come back for you? >> well, good morning, stuart, i will tell you first of all, i think it's a very bad path for the obama administration to go down and also the democrat party. when you think about we still have a lot of questions unanswered about libya, when you have a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before tha

stocks took a big hit yesterday after mitt romney's strong performance in wednesday night's presidential debate. i looked at a couple. author of the book health care investing, he were of currently fund manager at a investing company with a focus on health care. >> yeah. >> they did come back by the end of the session yesterday to some extent. what was the rationale that if romney gets in, obama care goes, so people will go back to the emergency room where the -- someone pays for it, but the hospitals get hurt anyway. >> right. simplistic trader thing. obama loses, obamacare goes away, 30 million all show up at the hospital and don't pay the bills. >> and the hospitals, they're results over thes past 0 years have been negatively impacted so-tsto what extent? >> it's changed over time. it's gotten worse as people have had to pay more of their insurance bills, but something like 1300, 1400 basis points of uncompensated care. >> we know that -- what is the percentage before obamacare of people covered in the u.s.? is it 80% by some insurance? >> it's been going down since way before obama.

one october surprise. first, mitt romney, the overall consensus, he had the big within in the first debate wednesday night. then thursday, he made headlined by saying his 47% comment of americans don't pay taxes is a mistake. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. i said something that was completely wrong. >> and friday, another october surprise. president obama getting a boost with the new unemployment rate report. the rate dipping below 8 persh for the first time since the president took office in 2009, which brings us to the next surprise. the obama campaign cash that was raised last month. september proved to be a lucrative month for the president's re-election campaign. democrats raised $181 million. that's a record. joining me live from washington, peter hamby. that's a whole lot of cash raised. very amazing. say many, and all in one month. how was it done? big donors, small donors, what? >> the campaign says 98% of this money came from people
remains that it is a night that president obama probably wishes he could have back. many democrats felt mr. romney bent the truth in the debate but was never called out. and i asked if he thought the moderator had bungled the responsibility. >> i think the moderators job is to make sure that the things that have been said on the stage is congruent to the things said in the past. not to call them a liar. >> if he has facts about what someone said. but it is up to the president to defend himself. >> absolutely. absolutely. i'm not trying to say the president should not take responsibility for his awful performance. he should have. but some criticism to the moderator is also justified. >> don, what the liberals is doing is postdebate spinning. it's whining. there's no whining in politics. there's one person who should have challenged what mitt romney was saying. his name is president barack obama. and he didn't do it. everyone else doing it afterwards doesn't carry the same punch. and i agree with l.z. it ways bit of both. it was a lot of both. president obama was way off. and mitt romney was
